Video games bring us together, and also tear us apart if we rage quit enough times. But there’s often friction in a relationship in which one person commits a lot of time to games and the other is uninterested. It can create a divide, and that’s no fun.

10. Don’t Starve Together

My wife and I play Dont Starve Together a lot on the PC.

We both have our own PCs and it is such a great time.


9. Terraria

Terraria is our go to game to play together.

My wife never got into 3D FPS controls, but grew up playing Mario and DK, so the 2D approach in Terraria is great for her.

It’s a lot of fun, and it works well using phones / tablets as well.

Go for a walk, talk to each other, catch critters.

Nice casual date!

It’s for two people and it’s where people work together.

2. Lego Games

My wife doesn’t really like video games but she loves playing co-op Lego Jurassic Park with me.

So I think most of the LEGO games would work. They are also great if you want to play with your kids.

My husband and I have never laughed harder when we were playing the Boom Town level and one of us kept setting off the bombs.
